In DP you will search and analyze documentaries and other media manifestations on the Internet to research on different scopes and perspectives related to the technology of your (master graduation) project.
You will make a digital and an analogue folder of your research, study on genres of documentaries, develop a scenario for your own documentary, select experts or other relevant persons to be interviewed, and compose a documentary about the real world perspective of your own project (Master Thesis ?) which gives the audience a clear new vision on the topic. You will get a rough idea about opportunities and threats for technological innovations within their scopes (social, economic, political, ethical, philosophical, psychological). Visual reflection and a changed perspective through storytelling within your documentary will generate a broad view on the problem you are going to solve, instead of the product you are going to make.
